We present a case of a 53-year-old male who presented with functionally limiting bilateral lower extremity neuropathic pain secondary to multiple subtypes of small fiber neuropathy. He had failed management with multiple conservative measures including oral medications, physical therapy and desensitization techniques. He ultimately underwent placement of a spinal cord stimulator and continued to experience 80% improvement of his pain, as well as improved function and quality of life at 5 month follow-up. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful treatment of multiple subtypes of small fiber neuropathy with spinal cord stimulator.
